6 great iPhotos

On Monday, six hikers put on big shoes and trudged around some of the most beautiful forest and snow country in our area.  We jumped out of cars and put on big "shoes" and walked around the hilly area that, in summer, flows into Wolf Creek.  We followed snowmobile tracks all over this hilly country very near the Continental Divide.  The almost warm morning turned to gently pelting snow.

We walked up hills (and down)—young athletes out improving their physical  condition.

We rested now and then

Then climbed a little more.

and it started snowing, which signaled we were ready to turn around with a mile and a half back to the highway.

This vigorous hiker lady is taking her husband fishing in Texas.  No snow there.  Too bad!

This Hike is over--and oh! those trees are marking the Continental Divide and a few strides on the Continental Divide
National Scenic trail (3,150 miles long).

Next hike = Next Monday:  Snow or shine and hopefully more snow nearer home.  10 a.m. departure at the Visitor Center

By the way, thanks to several of you for communing with us at the tuesday pot luck dinner:  First Tuesday of the month, 
in the community building, at 6 p.m.  Mark that on your calendar for March.  No charge--just a plate of cookies or something
healthier.  This event is open for all residents and any temporary visitors.
